    This is the first of how many anticipated sales Brad?

    I don't collect old cars and trucks, and it's a good thing, because those pictures are enough to send any collector into fits.

    isn't the blue pepsi more sought after than the red....or is that just for the bigger machines...???

    You can't possibly give us too many details on this. Absolutely fascinating! Like opening a time vault!

    Gotta love that tall blue and purple chair. :wideyed::woot:

    This is the first of about 5 sales. John collected for 60 years and never sold a thing. I knew him for 35 years. We have rented a former bank for 6 months to handle this. It is estimated that there are a million items in the estate. Most has not seen the light of day as of yet. There are many hundreds of boxes to be opened yet (No exaggeration). I chronicled the process of getting ready behind our general discussion firewall. If you are a member, you can see that discussion.

    Items will be priced with bids taken the first two days on more expensive items. The last day will be half off. I will be working the sale.

    I love that purple and blue chair too. Who made it?

    That sounds like a good way to price things.

    I don't suppose you can take pictures during the sale? :cool::eek::)

    Are they letting helpers buy things? You don't have to answer, just post a winking emoji.

    I see some baking tube pans. They never go out of style and were made better than the one's currently made.

    Not sure who made the chair. Has a label of a company I had never heard of and can't remember now. Someone thought an Adrian Pearsall design but probably a knock-off.

    I am sure that I will have some opportunity to buy but have not seen anything I am crazy for. Hope to end up with a work of art when all is said and done.

    John was the artist for most of this. A few done by his contemporaries. All done in the 60s.

    Did he paint the large picture of the children looking out the door at the tricycles? What an unusual painting!

    I looked thru all the pictures (excellent photos!). I would buy all the mid century modern pottery pieces and the Charlie McCarthy radio. I am glad I don't live close enough to drive or I would be the first in line!
